This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: much faster than a regular hard drive. not as good as a ssd though. decent compromise

Cons: none really, just not as fast as a ssd

Other Thoughts: got this when it was on sale for under $100, use it to store my games while my system runs off a ssd

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic Drive

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: 1 TB HDD + 8GB SSD? It's an amazing storage drive. I don't use it as my main drive. I install larger programs in it, and it works amazingly for this purpose.

Cons: Wish there was more SSD storage in this drive.

Other Thoughts: I have an SSD as my boot drive and this as my secondary storage drive, and it works great for this purpose. I'm considering getting another one for more storage and would not change it.

1 out of 5 eggsErupted in Flames After 15 Months

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: It boots nearly as quickly as the SSD I bought to replace it.

Cons: It erupted in flames after 15 months of use for seemingly no reason.

Other Thoughts: I'm just glad it didn't damaged anything else more than cosmetically.

1 out of 5 eggsSeagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Original cost was reasonable.

Relatively quiet.

Cons: Not reliable.

Very slow boot up on Windows OS.

Have corrupted data on my system.

Other Thoughts: I have used other Seagate Hybrid drives on desktops and laptops with good success.

I wanted more space, so I bought this one on sale and replaced a smaller capacity Seagate Hybrid drive.

Immediately, I noticed that it took a long time for the drive to get to the Windows splash screen. My other dirves took about 15 seconds, and this drive takes 45 seconds. I changed cables, tried different motherboard channels but nothing improved. I ran the drive for several months and then I started getting corrupted files. Fortunately, I make regular backups so I took this drive out and replaced it with a WD drive that I had used in the past. The WD drive got me back to the performance that I was accustomed to.

I think I just got a bad drive, but this experience makes me reluctant to try another hybrid drive from Seagate.

I will be contacting Seagate about a replacement, but I'm not sure I want to use it as my primary drive due to reliability issues.

I have been building and working on computers for years, and I have only had one other hard drive failure, and it was a Seagate that was DOA.

I think the hybrid technology is a good idea, but with SSD prices dropping, it's probably not worth the risk of the high failure rate that these drives seem to experience.

3 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Worked as expected for the first 11 months or so.

Cons: Just a little over a year later and I'm finding I need to replace due to increasing read errors.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear BJ H.,

Please try running our SeaTools diagnostics on the drive to determine the drive health. SeaTools also has the ability to correct some minor problems with the drive.

5 out of 5 eggsFast depending on use.

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: • 3 year warranty
• Slim construction, should provide a bit more airflow due to placement in front of case fan?
• Frequently used items seemingly quicker

Cons: • Made by Seagate

Other Thoughts: If you're a user that will go over that 8gb 'cache' frequently, this really is useless for you (ie: if you stream media from the drive or any other kind of high write/read usage). But, If like me you just use the computer for internet/photography/school/work etc then this could work. Especially considering the warranty and frequent sale price. Opening things like Photoshop and Word are practically instant, not that they were slow with a standard 7,200 but it is noticeable.

In short, don't expect SSD, but you shouldn't be disappointed if coming from an aging 7,200 or lower drive.

As an aside, I don't trust Seagate. Their failure rates are substantially higher than the likes of WD, and the only drives I've had fail before replacing them due to outgrowth have been Seagate. But, I have this drive set to back up, and it has a 3 year warranty, so the risk to me is minimal and I like it so far. If it dies within the warranty period I'll be updating my review.

1 out of 5 eggsdidn't even last a month

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: It ran well in the beginning I did notice a boost in boot speed.

Cons: Before even a month passed the drive failed and would not start. Blows my mind
